The complexities of the electronics in Takashi Sugimoto's quirkily designed Club Rooms took some time to fathom. Once we had learned which switch operated which blind, curtain or lamp we felt a certain sense of achievement. Whilst the décor may not be to all tastes, it would be churlish to be critical. You could not fault the comfort of the room, especially the bed which afforded us our best nights' sleep for some time.
The hotel is conveniently connected via a subway to the Novena underground station, meaning that most of the key sights and amenities of Singapore are easy to access.
For my wife and me, the main selling point of this hotel was the level of service on offer from all the employees we encountered during our four day stay.
We stayed at the Club Rooms but I think it would be fair to assume that the same levels of attentiveness prevail throughout this hotel. The staff were all prepared to go out of their way to assist and serve us, offering advice on what to see and do in Singapore and even providing useful information for our onward trip to Borneo. When I was laid low by a bug I had picked up in Malacca one of the staff escorted me to the nearby hospital and ensured that I was properly registered prior to receiving treatment.
The Club Rooms represent good value for money, especially when you take into account that breakfast, drinks throughout the day and cocktails between 18.00 and 20.00 are complimentary. These were provided at The Living Room on floor 22. The canapés and small pastries provided during cocktails were particularly tasty.
Following our check-out, a young lady in front of us in the taxi queue kindly gave us her cab, as she could see we were in a hurry to get to the airport. It turned out that she was a hotel employee: just about sums the place up for me.
This review refers to a stay my wife and I made from 5th to 9th March 2014.
